Prof. Penny Gowland

Penny is based at the Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre in Nottingham, where she conducts research in magnetic resonance imaging. She is particularly interested in the capabilities of functional and anatomical ultra-high field MRI in neuroscience.

The Centre

The Brain & Body Centre at University of Nottingham provides an interdisciplinary setting for studies of environmental and genetic factors that are shaping structure and function of the human brain and body.

We are interested both in the dynamics of normal development from pregnancy, through childhood and adolescence to adulthood, as well as in the long-term consequences of various environmental events that occur before birth but “program” the brain and body for the rest of life.

We hope that this work will lead to new discoveries relevant for disorders of the brain, such as addiction or depression, and the body, such as obesity or hypertension.
